On tap at Myrphy’s Law. Hazy orange with a tall off-white head. Orange zest, lemon juice, brett, farmhouse funk. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, low carbonation and a herbal bitter aftertaste.

22 ounce bottle, label says best before end JULI2015. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head that stayed around for a very long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus peel) hops, and also some bready malt and floral/herbalness. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some peppery spice, peaches, Belgian yeast and some hay/straw. The bitterness really kicks in after a while, it has a nice bitter and fruity overall flavor. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's coating and a bit creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, it's definitely worth picking up! $13.99 a bottle.

Double IPA from Belgium, 'Outrageously hopped, disturbingly taste.

Orange-brown, murky with a creamy beige head.
Big aroma of citrus, apricots, pine. Taste is a bit sweet, and a lot bitter.
Aftertaste is strong bitterness, perhaps a bit harsh. At 8,5%abv the alcohol is hardly noticable, but the stuff leaves a warmth that's nice.
Overall, this beer is a very decent IPA, in my experience. It's bitter and powerfull like they are, with the usual hops. Worth a try.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface, a thick collar, and lots of lacing coating the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of floral, herbal, and citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of caramel malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of herbal and citrusy hops, which contributes a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish along with notes of Belgian yeast and some hints of grapefruit hops and caramel malts. The citrus flavors and bitterness in the finish become stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has lots of complexities in the smell and taste and has a lot of interplay between the hops, yeast, and malts. It's also rather drinkable as any traces of alcohol are well hidden from the taste.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy yellow-orange pour with a huge meringue-like white head with crazy retention and lacing. The nose is somewhat subdued, but quite nice. Hints of fresh picked floral hops, orange Creamsicle, grapefruit, grass, caramel, and subtle vanilla. The taste is sweet and fruity upfront with a tangy fresh hop finish. Getting really big orange Creamsicle notes along with flowery fresh hops, grapefruit, grass, lemon, caramel, brown sugar, and a nice herbal character. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with perfect balance and over the top drinkability. Overall, this is a really unique IPA that I absolutely loved. Extremely fresh and balanced and hugely drinkable!

Pours a hazy, dark amber, with a one finger head that doesn't leave much lacing. Good retention though. Smells of mango, pineapple, something like corn, orange, lemon, pine/resin and toasted bread. A little bit of alcohol. Taste is a bit spicy and bitter, with citrus and orange dominating. There's also some toasted bread/biscuit in there, and the whole thing has a grassy character to it. Some sourness as well. And some butter too? Body is thin with light carbonation, very smooth.

Great stuff.
